Birchas Hachama is actually said on Erev Pesach and not the first day. It can never be recited on the first day of Pesach, because the first day of Peasach can not fall out on a Wednesday, which is the only day that Birchas Hachama can be said. In addition, Birchas Hachama was said on on April 8, 1925 which fell out on…Erev Pesach(there goes that theory)! Should we cancel teshuva?
charliehall, are you suggesting that a boy should marry a girl that he finds unattractive because to not do so would be acting like the goyim?!?!?!?
Be realistic, many boys DO find heavier girls unattractive(regardless of whether it is right or wrong, at this point it is a FACT), so…you can either tell them they are acting like the goyim, which will NOT solve the problem, or you can suggest that the girls try to lose some weight which may solve the problem.
GILA: You would make it easier for everyone, and make yourself sound a lot more credible if you used some simple grammar rules. I am not talking about anything major, nor am I professing to have the best grammar in the world, but some periods, commas, writing the full word, and even the occasional capital word at the beginning of a sentence would go a long way towards making your posts more understandable. I am seriously just trying to be helpful, so please do not take this the wrong way.
Call the agudah office, they know all of the details, and will be happy to help you.
Do you think the “wondeful people” of YWN are qualified to be halachik authorities? And, do you have a valid reason for trusting nameless, faceless posters?
